I'm trying to install an additional package for R, "SampleSizeMeans."
In the Notebook, I type r.install_packages('SampleSizeMeans') and it seems to install properly (output pasted below). Note I do this with "Sage" as the worksheet type at the top.
I've quit Sage completely and restarted the notebook, but none of the functions are available. I switch the Type in the Sage notebook to "R" and type "mu.acc(len=0.2, alpha=2, beta=2, n0=10)" (one of the examples) but it says "Error: could not find function "mu.acc".
Am I missing something or is this a bug?
Thanks very much,
Justin

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9183/cant-access-functions-after-install-r-additional-package/?comment=19337#post-id-19337You figured this out, but loading a library should also be necessary for R packages within a standard (non-Sage) R session - just for those who find this later. I don't think there is any way around this.Wed, 25 Jul 2012 17:14:09 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9183/cant-access-functions-after-install-r-additional-package/?comment=19337#post-id-19337Answer by Justin1 for <p>Hi, </p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9183/cant-access-functions-after-install-r-additional-package/?answer=13856#post-id-13856Turns out the step I was missing is that you must load the library using the r function r.library (i.e., r.library('SampleSizeMeans').
Therefore, step-by-step for loading and then using new R packages:
1. Use `r.install_packages('PackageName')`
2. Restart Sage
3. Use `r.library('PackageName')` to load the package prior to use.
It's worth noting that although it recommends that you restart Sage, it seemed to work immediately for the packages I tried so it may not be strictly necessary which is very handy!Wed, 25 Jul 2012 15:17:13 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9183/cant-access-functions-after-install-r-additional-package/?answer=13856#post-id-13856Comment by kcrisman for <p>Turns out the step I was missing is that you must load the library using the r function r.library (i.e., r.library('SampleSizeMeans'). </p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9183/cant-access-functions-after-install-r-additional-package/?comment=19338#post-id-19338No, it's almost certainly not necessary to restart Sage; we really have to change that piece of doc, I've never needed to.Wed, 25 Jul 2012 17:12:14 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9183/cant-access-functions-after-install-r-additional-package/?comment=19338#post-id-19338
